Poured from a 2018 aged bottle, thanks Doug, medium black oily body no head. Got plenty of the barrel in the nose: rich and hardy oak, bourbon, molasses mash, with bakers chocolate, some soil, and licorice. Taste, despite aging, is pretty hot, but not in a harsh way, rather it wants the drinker to know the barrel journey it has been on. Really get bourbon, oak, black strap molasses, and chocolate, with licorice and a slight touch of vanilla brighten it right before the finish. Feel is thinner than expected, which lets the barrel heat carry the feel too. Another great ba offering from begyle

L: oily dark and syrupy

A: bourbon oak, licorice, chocolate, coffee, toffee, caramel

T: bourbon up front, hints of everything else that appeared in aroma with some vanilla. Also has spice such as licorice that tends to be present in rye whiskey but Heaven Hill and Buffalo Trace is not rye whiskey so not understanding the heavy spice.

F: thin, looks heavier than it is,very delicate slow sipper.

O: it's good but so much BA beers on market this just doesn't live up to those. It might do some good from some age. I think I would appreciate more bourbon flavor.
